Our Ambassador Charlie King, media volunteer Kim Booker and others associated with the BDD Foundation have been talking with the media this week about the importance of this report into body image, in particular highlighting the issues surrounding Body Dysmorphic Disorder and how the government can help.

Here are some highlights:

Kim Booker who gave evidence to the Parliamentary inquiry into the impact of Body Image has also been interviewed in recent days on her experience of BDD which fuelled her use of aesthetics. She calls for better regulation of the industry and support for those suffering from Body Dysmorphic Disorder

Her powerful testimony can be found on Sky News and Channel 4 news.

Omari Eccleston Brown spoke live on Sky News about his experiences of Body Dysmorphic Disorder and what helped him in his recovery journey.
